The issue with the script as-is is, once the vuln is patched, it'll keep

There are some fixes around already. By fixing the LFI, the HTTP response status
won't be 200, so the script will not return a false positive.

It works if I switch out the string.match() with "==".

I don't know why, though! 

That's because Lua string.match() method expects a pattern as a second argument
(not a raw string) and the special "-" character is interpreted as the Lua
modifier for repetitions. Thanks for cathing this.
